Bad News for Dems as Blue Wave Bombed in NC Special Elections w/ Key Wins by Republicans

Dems were all set to make this a referendum on Trump. If so, the outcome is a huge win for Trump!

Dems were hoping for a big upset Tuesday night in two special congressional elections in North Carolina. They pulled out all the stops and overspent the Republican challenger in the key NC-9 race by more than 2 to 1. Had they won it would have been declared a repudiation of Trump and an ominous sign for 2020. But Republicans won both seats. Dem talking points declaring the end of Trump were sent to the recycle bin. If anything, the vote this week reaffirmed Trump's power to reach the people after a huge rally in North Carolina on Monday.

What's really interesting here is that the swing in 2018 which left the NC-9 seat with a margin of less than 1,000 votes swung back to a much larger victory for the GOP candidate. The only silver lining for Dems is that they still outpolled their usual strength in a district Trump won by double digits. But if you extrapolate the result here to those 3 dozen other close House races that Dems won in 2018, it's very bad news for them as they try to hold control of the House in 2020.

If Lies are Wrong then What is Kamala Harris?

What do you bet the same people judging Trump's every utterance will give Kamala a pass?

#Blexit #Walkaway More Minorities Leaving the Dem Plantation. Tired of the Hate!

Despite radical Dem attempts to punish and silence dissent these folks will not be intimidated by hate and threats!

Dem 2020 Hopeful Pete Buttigieg Says "God is Watching" And We Must Stop Using Plastic Straws As He Has Slurps Down Another Cold Drink w/ Plastic Straw

Once again, Dems come out admitting they want you to change the way YOU live while they are exempt!

At this week's Democrat climate change debate one after another repeated the Big Lie that we only have 10-12 years to save the planet. Dems claim that scientists have told them this is so.  No matter that for the past 30 years these same "scientists" have been making that claim.  We should all be dead by now.

Mayor Pete Buttigieg is taking it to the next level by insisting that "God is watching" what we do and that it is a "kind of sin" to ignore Dem's desperate demands.

Imagine what the reaction would be if Trump invoked God and suggested that opposing his policies was a "sin."

But if God is watching and doing the wrong thing on climate change is a "sin" what does God think of Pete Buttigieg?
And like fellow Dem contenders who also continue to use plastic straws Pete uses private aircraft to take him to campaign events.
In cities in California where they have banned plastic straws the stench of human feces is having a huge impact on the environment and public health as the homeless and illegal alien problem spirals out of control. Not a word from any Democrat on what God thinks about that!
If it's OK to talk about God and sins. Let's talk about the sin of abandoning so many millions of Americans to squalor, crime, disease and poverty and why Dems are doing nothing about that!

Thank You "The Chosen One" aka President Trump For Sparing Me Worst of #HurricaneDorian

Ridiculous?  If you're going to blame Trump for hurricanes, then he gets credit when they turn out to be more benign!

Hurricane Dorian pulled away from Mike's America with little more than a whimper.  Light winds and rain were the only evidence a storm was here. But we had three days of over hyped warnings and state mandatory evacuations which caused much more disruption than the actual storm.

Grocery stores are now re-opening and those residents who did evacuate are finding no hindrance to their return.  Only once in my 23 years of coastal living have we had a serious storm and that was Hurricane Matthew in 2016.

There are residents in the area without power and concern further up the coast for major flooding and power outage as the storm inches closer to shore.  But for Mike's America and his neighbors the threat has passed.

There's one person we have to thank for our salvation:

While hate-filled left wingers were hoping the hurricane would devastate Trump's home in South Florida and have said that hurricanes are a punishment to states that voted for Trump the voters of Florida, Georgia and southern South Carolina can be proud they voted for Trump.

It's as if he raised his hand to the storm and deflected it's path away from the supporters in these states!

And if any Trump hater doesn't like it, stop saying Trump is to blame for hurricanes.  There is NO connection between climate change and hurricanes!
It is common to see claims that hurricane-related inland rainfall and flooding has increased due to climate change. This is not the view presented in recent assessments. NOAA concludes “an anthropogenic influence has not been formally detected for hurricane precipitation,” but finds it likely that increases will occur this century. Similarly, the WMO concluded, “no observational studies have provided convincing evidence of a detectable anthropogenic influence specifically on hurricane-related precipitation,” but also that an increase should be expected this century. The U.S. National Climate Assessment concurred, explaining that there is agreement on predictions for a future increase in hurricane-related rainfall, but “a limiting factor for confidence in the results is the lack of a supporting detectable anthropogenic contribution in observed tropical cyclone data.”
The same people who can't predict the path of a hurricane with any certainty 24 hours in advance are hardly those who inspire confidence in predictions of climate change generations from now.

But at least we have The Chosen One to protect us!

Hunkering Down for #HurricaneDorian

Forecast shows storm staying offshore with less severe risk but prepared!

As of 2 PM Wednesday Hurricane Dorian was offshore of Jacksonville, Florida with a storm track that should keep it offshore along the coast of South Carolina. Mike's America is on the coast at the South Carolina/Georgia border. Even though the storm is forecast to remain offshore for my area we do expect winds up to 50-60 miles an hour with rain between 6-10 inches.

Dorian is significantly weaker after it stalled over the Bahamas and spared Florida.  No severe impact is expected in this area where it is currently cloudy with intermittent light rain and low winds.

We are at the end of an historic low cycle for hurricane activity along the Atlantic coast. So much for global warming. I guess that's why the government's most accurate temperature network shows no warming over that same period.

Democrats Seek to Block Black Vote by Scrapping "Virtual" Caucus

The people who shout RACISM when Republicans talk about voter security are "disenfranchising" their own primary caucus voters!

And older cartoon but you see where Dems are headed.
Their voters hardly count at all!
From Public Radio:
DNC Recommends Scrapping Plans For Virtual Iowa, Nevada Caucuses Over Security

Security concerns have prompted the Democratic National Committee to recommend nixing a plan that would have allowed Iowans and Nevadans to remotely caucus for candidates next year.

Supporters have long argued that "virtual caucuses" would open up Iowa's first-in-the-nation presidential contest, which requires caucusers to physically attend sometimes hours-long events to declare their choice for president.

But upon the recommendations of security consultants, the Democratic National Committee said Friday that it is recommending its Rules and Bylaws Committee reject Iowa's and Nevada's plans when it votes next week.

"There is no tele-caucus system available that meets our standard of security and reliability given the scale needed for the Iowa and Nevada caucuses and the current cybersecurity climate," said DNC leadership in a statement.

"For these reasons, we are recommending to the committee that virtual caucus systems not be used in the Iowa and Nevada 2020 caucus processes."
This is the same party who insists there is no voter fraud problem and that every effort by Republicans to establish election security is racist.

2020 Dem presidential hopeful Julian Castro noted the irony:
The Democratic National Committee’s decision to disenfranchise tens of thousands of voters, and decrease turnout by up to a third, in the first-in-the-nation caucus state is an affront to the principles of our democracy.
No doubt the DNC will revert to demands for open voting without any ID or restriction in the general election. But God forbid they allow anyone to tamper with their primary! Open borders. Open elections. Lots of fraud!

Buying Greenland: Good for Island Residents. Good for U.S. Good for Global Security

If people actually THOUGHT about this before they hit the hysteria button they might realize it's a good idea!

When the news leaked that Trump wanted to buy Greenland I was puzzled. The idea did seem to come out of the blue.  When I first heard it my initial reaction was that it was fake news. When it turned out to be a genuine story the usual Trump hating hysterics turned it into the usual circus.

But think about it.

In January the St. Louis Dispatch ran an editorial titled "While America slept, China gained a stranglehold on the Panama Canal:"
Under President Donald Trump’s watch, Washington has stood idly as China rolled into Panama and established a major hemispheric foothold alongside a waterway essential to U.S. commerce and national security. Much as former President Jimmy Carter was blamed for negotiating the treaties that handed control of the U.S.-built canal to Panama, it was Trump who allowed China to sink its claws into this highly strategic asset.
The Dispatch said America was sleeping. More accurately, the entire media has been consumed by Big Lie about Trump and Russia. No room for serious discussions on global security. Despite the swipe at Trump the Dispatch is correct that China is working on a long term plan to supplant the U.S. as the leader in global security.

What China has been doing is not a secret. They openly talk about it. Concrete, literally, evidence of this plan's implementation can be seen in the South China Sea where Beijing is building artificial islands 800 miles away from the Chinese mainland that are directly in the center of Asia's shipping lanes off the coast of the Philippines, Malaysia and Vietnam. The only purpose of these islands is military control of the shipping lanes. It's a direct threat to the Japanese who depend on those routes. Students of history will recall what happened the last time the Japanese felt their lifeline was threatened. Nuclear weapons used on Hiroshima and Nagasaki was the ultimate result.

So, control over Asian shipping routes and strong presence at the Panama Canal and Latin America. What's next on China's plate? G R E E N L A N D! Once again, they're not shy about saying so. Chinese strategists call it the Polar Silk Road to dominate shipping and strategic control in the Arctic shipping lanes.

China has a history of interest in Greenland. This brief op-ed by Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AK) summarizes the issue perfectly:
We Should Buy Greenland
The New York Times
By: Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas)

Trump isn't the only one to recognize the country's strategic importance. Beijing does, too.

After news leaked last week that President Trump had expressed interest in acquiring Greenland from Denmark, his critics predictably derided him as crazy. But once again, the president is crazy like a fox. The acquisition of Greenland would secure vital strategic interests for the United States, economically benefit both us and Greenlanders, and would be in keeping with American - and Danish - diplomatic traditions.

Strategically positioned in the Arctic Circle, Greenland has long attracted the attention of American policymakers. As far back as 1867, Secretary of State William Seward explored the acquisition of Greenland around the time that he negotiated the purchase of Alaska from the Russians. I myself raised the prospect of acquiring Greenland with the Danish ambassador just last year.

In 1946, the Truman administration offered $100 million to Denmark to acquire Greenland, arguing that the island was "indispensable to the safety of the United States" in confronting the growing Soviet threat, just as it had been in World War II when American forces used bases in Greenland to deter Nazi aggression. While the deal didn't go through, we kept troops on the island throughout the Cold War. Today, the Air Force's 21st Space Wing is stationed at Thule Air Base in western Greenland to support our ballistic-missile defenses and space missions.

America is not the only nation to recognize Greenland's strategic significance. Intent on securing a foothold in the Arctic and North America, China attempted in 2016 to purchase an old American naval base in Greenland, a move the Danish government prevented. Two years later, China was back at it, attempting to build three airports on the island, which failed only after intense lobbying of the Danes by the Trump administration.

Beijing understands not only Greenland's geographic importance but also its economic potential. Greenland is rich in a wide array of mineral deposits, including rare-earth minerals - resources critical to our high-tech and defense industries. China currently dominates the market in these minerals and has threatened to withhold them from us to gain leverage in trade negotiations. Greenland also possesses untold reserves of oil and natural gas.

An agreement to transfer Greenland's sovereignty must also serve the interests of our good friends, the Danes, and the 56,000 Greenlanders as well. Their considerations ought to include the fact that despite Greenland's long-term potential, a lack of infrastructure and financing still hamstring the island's economy today. Greenland's economy is less than one-tenth of Vermont's, America's smallest state economy. Every year, Denmark transfers $670 million in subsidies to support the island.

As the world's largest economy, the United States could more easily assume support for Greenland's communities while investing substantially in its future. The transfer of Greenland's sovereignty would alleviate a significant financial burden on the Danish people while expanding opportunities for Greenlanders. Just look at what American sovereignty has meant to Alaskans compared with conditions in Siberia under Russian control.

Despite the historical ignorance of the president's critics, the negotiated acquisition of sovereignty is a longstanding and perfectly legitimate tool of statecraft, particularly in the American tradition. More than one-third of America's territory was purchased from Spain (Florida), France (the Louisiana Purchase), Mexico (the Gadsden Purchase) and Russia (Alaska).

Indeed, Washington and Copenhagen have engaged in exactly this kind of transaction. In 1917, President Woodrow Wilson - the great champion of self-determination - paid $25 million to purchase the Danish West Indies, which have ever since been known as the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Who today believes the acquisition of Alaska was "Seward's folly"? On the contrary, it has been a great blessing to Alaskans and all Americans. Our nation has much to gain, as do the Danes and Greenlanders. While there are short-term obstacles, the same benefits could apply for Greenland today - and the manifest logic of this idea means that its consideration is here to stay.
There are other good reasons to buy Greenland. The people living there would get an immense benefit from direct association with the United States. Until now the Danes have run the Island as a nature preserve. The native people living there are treated as museum exhibits. Their citizens have the highest unemployment, alcoholism and suicide rate in the Northern hemisphere. Associating with the U.S. would bring jobs and opportunity. Perhaps Trump could offer to relocate natives to a Trump resort in Florida.

Whether or not the Greenlanders and Danes are willing to discuss the issue of sovereignty, one thing is clear, we must not allow the Chinese to gain strategic dominance over this vital region. The Trump haters may not like it but selling Greenland to the U.S. is a great idea!

Here's One for the Trump Haters!

What a shame you can't join the party!

While the Trump haters are out there everyday with another sour dose of hate, racism and division the rest of us are enjoying the ride!
Don't like it? SUCK IT!

"Beto" O'Rourke Says 12 KKK Idiots in NC Show White Supremacists But Ignores THOUSANDS of Antifa in Violent Mobs

Not one Democrat has condemned Antifa and left wing violence!

Poor Beto. His failing presidential campaign is so desperate he's tweeting about this:
And lying about Trump saying the KKK was "fine people."

Yes, about a dozen KKK idiots showed up in North Carolina to exercise their First Amendment right to speak. Note that the event was entirely peaceful. Contrast that with any gathering by Antifa, the left wing paramilitary group that dresses in black with helmets or masks to conceal their identity. Every few weeks there's a new story of an Antifa assault on Trump supporters or firebombing and gun attacks on ICE and the mass shooting in Dayton.

Not one Democrat has ever condemned Antifa. Not one!

These are the People Who Think Trump is Crazy. Accuse Him of Killing More People Than Hitler, Mao and Stalin!

The fact that nuts like this get put on television is proof of just how far off the deep end the Trump haters have gone!
